Hyderabad | 22nd April 2021
The Telangana State Election Commission has drawn much flak for deciding to hold elections in two municipal corporations and five municipalities of the state amidst the current pandemic.

However, the body has maintained that it has no intention of rescheduling the April 30 elections.

SEC Commissioner C Parthasarathi made clear this decision again today, and reiterated that the elections would be conducted on April 30 in adherence with all the required Covid-19 safety protocols.

He said that the state government had asked the body to conduct the elections despite the pandemic as they would be carried out as per the relevant safety guidelines.

The SEC head even held a review meeting with the electoral officials to discuss the ways to ensure the smooth conduct of the elections.

"As announced, the elections for two municipal corporations and five municipalities will be held on April 30. Necessary arrangements have been made in coordination with other government departments for fair elections. We are also taking several steps to ensure that public safety is in no way compromised due to the election," he said.

The parties in the state have been told that only five people per party should take part in the campaigning efforts, and that all campaigns should conclude before 6:00 pm each day.

The SEC has also imposed a blanket ban on the organisation of public meetings and roadshows in the poll-bound areas.
